Exhibit Surveys Launches 50th Birthday Celebration at EXHIBITOR2013

First to Use Data to Substantiate Value of Exhibitions

RED BANK, NJ – March 6, 2013 - Exhibit Surveys, Inc., the leading provider of research, measurement, and consulting services exclusively for the exhibition and event industry announced today that it will begin its year-long 50th birthday celebration in booth 1337 at EXHIBITOR2013. All attendees are invited to booth 1337 throughout the show, and especially at 1:30 pm on March 19 for a special party.

Founded in 1963 by Richard K. Swandby, Exhibit Surveys was the first to use data to substantiate the value of exhibitions, including the development of many now-standard benchmarks of audience quality and performance such as Net Buying Influences, Potential Audience, Traffic Density, Exhibit Efficiency, and Cost-Per-Visitor Reached.

“Technology has transformed the industry, yet some things haven’t changed at all,” commented Swandby, who retired in 2005. “It still comes down to face-to-face communication with the right people, and that’s what has to be accomplished in every exhibit. I’m very pleased with Exhibit Surveys’ accomplishments over 50 years, and I heartedly congratulate Skip and his team for skillfully continuing the mission of Exhibit Surveys.”

“Much of Exhibit Surveys’ long-term success and relevancy is attributed to the foundation Dick Swandby laid and the remarkable team of professionals who have been part of our company throughout the years,” comments Jonathan "Skip" Cox, CEO and president, Exhibit Surveys Inc. “We will continue to lead the industry because of the quality, skill and dedication of our staff.”

“Face-to-face marketing has come a long way since Exhibit Surveys was founded fifty years ago. But much of that change has been a direct result of the company’s contributions to this industry. Today’s trade show marketers are more informed, educated, and strategic because of the five decades worth of work and data the company has produced,” said Travis Stanton, editor, EXHIBITOR Magazine. “Congratulations and kudos, but also gratitude and appreciation, are in order. Exhibit Surveys’ five decades of data and dedication is a milestone that should be celebrated not just by the company, but by our entire industry.”

In addition to booth activities, Exhibit Surveys’ executives will be teaching classes at the conference:
